Drops is the lamp that followed my previous design, photon. The goal of that lamp was to bring a modular aspect to the system. To achieve it, I designed a single module that could be suspended to a wood beam multiple times. The user can choose the lamp length by adding LED modules.
The module is composed of an aluminium reflector, a radiator and a wood support. The reflector allows light to shine to the table and also reflects it to the ceiling without blinding the user. The radiator provides a mounting location for the LED and allows heat dissipation. The wood beam hides a steel weight to straighten the support cables.
I built lamps with three, four and five modules depending on the customer’s request.
The top housing is made out of laser cut stainless steel. It features a quick release system. On the side of the housing, a potentiometer allows to dim the lamp from 100% to 20% light intensity.
Inside the housing, the Mean-Well power supply converts the 220V voltage into 10V that can directly be fed to each LED. There is room to tuck the cables, allowing to adjust the cable length precisely.
